Alternative Energy: She’s clean, she’s trendy, she’s cheaper than ever before.
The Resourcerer: The magician of Reuse! He’s concerned about where materials are coming from, and what happens to them after disposal.
Mad Cow: The vegan anarchist! He’s here to show how cultural shifts on a massive scale can reduce global carbon production.
It’s RubberMan! She’s here to fight for educating girls worldwide and to increase access to family planning.
And visiting from La Liga Lucha Libre, Carbon Capture‘s unsavory alliances with fossil fuel companies make everyone question which side he’s really on.
But they’ll all have to work together to defeat the ultimate combatant, Ms. Extinction. It’ll be tough to get her to even bother to fight back. All she has to do is sit around and wait for humanity to destroy itself . . . . Who will prevail????
